Jesus wants Pussy Riot to be freed, on South Park at least

In a recent (possibly the latest, I haven’t been keeping up with the show) episode of South Park Jesus is depicted wearing a t-shirt with the words ‘Free Pussy Riot’ in support of the Russian band that were jailed after an impromptu performance in a church. The consensus in the media outside Russia is that the punishment far outweighed their crime and that the sentence was politically motivated.

Having not seen the episode I don’t know the whole story, but I get the feeling the reason for the shirt being in the show is South Park poking a bit of fun at slacktivists who are happy to buy a t-shirt to show their support for an issue but not really do anything to help, though what most of us could actually do to help the two band members I don’t really know. I suspect that if we look a little deeper, that Trey and Matt probably do support the plight of Pussy Riot, as they were trying to express their views in Russia, something that South Park does on a weekly basis, often pushing the boundaries of freedom of speech.
